After a day hiking up Mount Snowdon or cycling in northwest Wales, kick back in style and stay at one of Snowdonia’s finest hotels, where you’ll be treated to four-poster beds and swoon-worthy views over Snowdonia National Park. Choose from grand halls frequented by Queen Victoria, eclectic boutique B&Bs and luxury spa hotels, bookable with Culture Trip.

An old coaching inn transformed into luxury boutique accommodation, Betws-y-Coed’s Royal Oak Hotel epitomises decadence. The building’s heritage was given special attention during its renovation, so expect plush curtains, dark-wood beds and vintage slipper bathtubs. Decorated in earthy colours inspired by the Snowdonia landscape, it’s the ideal environment for enjoying a glass – or two – of champagne.

Rest and relaxation are on the agenda at this hotel – there’s a steam room, sauna and jacuzzi for unwinding after dips in the indoor pool. You can de-stress in your room too, whether you choose to bed down in the main building or in one of the sleek lodge-style spaces scattered around the lush grounds. For woodland walks, the Gwydyr Forest’s leafy greenery is accessible from this Betws-y-Coed hotel.

This cosy bed and breakfast in Betws-y-Coed has seven ensuite rooms but the luxury four-poster option, with its original 19th-century fireplace and cushy leather sofa, is particularly plush. You’ll have views of the national park’s woodland-strewn hills from your large window. After hiking up to the peak of Yr Wyddfa (Mount Snowdon), curl up on a high-backed chair next to the crackling fire in the shared lounge downstairs.

Hotel Portmeirion & Castell Deudraeth

The Italian-style coastal village of Portmeirion attracts 200,000 people a year, so if you want to see it without the crowds, stay overnight in its Castell Deudraeth accommodation. Sleep in a room adorned in Marc Chagall prints and swim in the outdoor pool, surrounded by pristine lawn. An evening meal in the walnut-panelled bar and dining room, redecorated in art deco style by celebrated interior designer Sir Terrence Conran, is a delight.

Celtic Royal Hotel

Follow in the footsteps of royalty at this colonnade-fronted hotel in characterful Caernarfon – Queen Victoria stayed here with her mother in 1832. The afternoon tea is fit for aristocracy with its dainty finger sandwiches and fruit-topped tarts, all perfectly laid out on a traditional cake stand. Work up an appetite with laps in the heated indoor swimming pool or simply wind down in the sauna, bubble pool and steam room.
